The driver of a Mercedes-Benz A Class was asked to settle RM275.65 in unpaid toll charges after Prolintas detected the car having evaded paying toll payments.
The car had apparently avoided paying tolls a total of 45 times.
According to Prolintas, the woman behind the wheels, when they finally stopped the vehicle yesterday, agreed to settle the outstanding amount in full.
The driver was stopped by Prolintas staff at a toll booth of the Ampang-KL Elevated Highway (AKLEH).
In a thread on Twitter, Prolintas shared a photo of the woman behind the wheels, hashtagged #kantoi (caught).
“Take this as a lesson, do not imitate this immoral act. You are not only trespassing but you are endangering other vehicles,” Prolintas said.
This is just the latest in Prolintas’ active efforts of catching toll evaders.
In September last year, they caught a Proton X50 which had accumulated RM57.50 in unpaid toll charges.
Toll concessionaires have the avenue of taking a civil suit against toll evaders where they can be charged under Section 8 of the Federal Roads (Private Management) Act 1984.
A conviction would see offenders being fined between RM2,000 and RM5,000.
Last year, a road user shared a video of how he foiled another vehicle’s attempt to avoid paying toll.
